16 channel wireless intercom, portable public address system offers convenient Â?all callÂ? channel and auto lock out.

Responding to coaches, event coordinators, theater directors, security personnel, and others in need of a portable PA system with group and one-to-one wireless communication capability, Anchor Audio, the industry leader in portable public address and wired intercom systems, offers its new PortaCom Pro. The PortaCom Pro is the only 2.4 GHz professional wireless intercom PA system combining an automatic lock out feature to keep conversations to two speakers at a time for maximum understanding, with an “All Call” channel allowing any user to speak to everyone in a group.

Allowing up to 15 simultaneous groups to operate on 15 user group channels and a separate “All Call” channel, the user-friendly PortaCom Pro can bring any size group together for priority calls. Each user group can contain an unlimited number of users within a range of approximately 700 feet. Unlike cumbersome wireless intercom systems requiring a central base station or active antennae, this wireless intercom portable public address system requires just a lightweight headset and beltpack for each user.

Offering a natural conversational feel, the PortaCom Pro’s patent-pending, Omni Point Expandable Network “OPEN” recognizes human speech patterns, enabling it to limit full duplex communication to just two users at once. This enhances understanding since only two people speak at a time while the rest of the group listens, and a new user can speak as soon as a channel is clear.

The “All Call” channel allows any user to speak to everyone in the group. When the “All Call” operator stops speaking, all users conveniently and automatically revert to their original channel selection. The “All Call” operator switches to another channel to disengage the feature.

To secure privacy, this wireless intercom portable PA system provides unique User Selectable Encryption (USE), which prevents eavesdropping from users outside a particular group. Users simply set switches under the battery door to one of 256 unique settings. When all of the belt packs are set to the same settings, no other intercoms or scanners can monitor the transmissions. This feature is particularly helpful for security or sport event-related applications where privacy is critical.

In the 2.4GHz range, the PortaCom Pro has excellent worldwide reception, and is ultra secure from unwanted noise with over one trillion addressing codes. Comfortable, lightweight noise-canceling headsets further improve sound quality in optional single, dual, or mixed headset configurations.

Designed for simplicity, the device can be used by anyone. Getting started is as simple as connecting the headset to the body pack; wearing the headset and positioning the body pack on a belt or pocket; then turning it on and starting communication.

To conserve battery power, the PortaCom Pro is voice activated and has an LED battery indicator. The system is available in four or six packs consisting of headsets, wireless belt packs, power supply wall chargers, and a protective carrying case with custom cut foam.

As a unique wireless intercom portable PA system, the PortaCom Pro is designed to meet the needs of coaches, theater directors, event coordinators, security personnel, and others who need a simple, reliable communication system to conduct their business. “It’s a business tool, technologically sophisticated to be reliable and user friendly,” said David Jacobs, President of Anchor Audio.” For over twenty-five years Anchor Audio has remained the industry leader in portable sound systems.
